Vinnie Paul: 'There's a Lot of Magic in Spontaneity'
Former Pantera and current Hellyeah stickman Vinnie Paul recently discussed his approach to making music dating all the way back to Pantera days. While interviewed by Mulatschag TV alongside singer Chad Gray, the drummer was asked to describe the band's working process and recording habits. "We mic everything up and we hit the space bar and we literally just start playing," the vocalist said. "I don't think that there's a single note that Hellyeah's ever played that isn't recorded somewhere, on some hard drive, somewhere in the house." The singer continued, saying, "Him [Vinnie] and his brother had a philosophy that if you do it that way you never have to go back an try to think 'What was that part?' You can go back and use it as a reference." Vinnie Paul finally chipped in, commenting, "Write and record as you record and write. It's all there, it's always there. There's a lot of magic in spontaneity and you can't duplicate that sometime, so you've got to get it the first time." The group's latest studio release, "Band of Brothers," dropped back in July 2012 via Eleven Seven Records as the third effort in the Hellyeah catalogue. The album was followed by a total of three singles - "War in Me," the title track and "Drink Drank Drunk." You can check out the full interview below.
